    Fuerzas Aeromóviles del Ejército de Tierra CH-47F Chinook

    Plans to the transition to the Foxtrot variant began in 2014 with funds allocated for the program in 2018. Under an €820 millions contract, Boeing will upgrade the CH-47D fleet to the CH-47F variant.

    The first helicopter arrived at Boeing Ridley Park, PA in 2020 after some delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. First 3 upgraded Chinooks scheduled for delivery in Q4 2021. Last one and 17th helicopter to be completed in 2025.

    The first CH-47F arrived in November 2021 and was received with an official ceremony at the Colmenar Viejo base in January.

    As of January 2023, 5 CH-47F have been delivered with 7 more expected to arrive this year. 17th and final Chinook is scheduled for late 2024 and FAMET is aiming to secure funding for the 18th aircraft.
